Book Hooks is a weekly meme hosted by Marketing for Romance Writers as part of the MFRW Authors Blog. It's a chance each week for you the reader to discover current WIP or previously published book by possibly new to you authors.
Today, I am showcasing a snippet from my latest duology release – Hot and Hotter.
Scene Set – Continuation of opening scene. Lori is a rookie flight attendant. Unfortunately – her plane is about to crash.
The plane smacked on something. It wasn't the familiar and comforting feel of tires on tarmac. It was more like a crunch, like on a gravel road. The plane rose. Lori's stomach heaved. A nearby passenger wretched. The foul smell floated in the air. Lori gagged and pressed her face against her sleeve, trying to block the stench.
A second time the plane's belly flopped onto the surface.
Lori tilted her head. Water landing? At night. We overshot Caracas? She checked over her shoulders at the emergency exits on her right and left. Running over the procedure gave her calmness; something solid she could grasp. Hope.
The plane shivered, then released a hideous metallic scream. The sounds from the galley behind her resembled a bottle containing stones being violently shaken. An explosive snap made her flinch as the plane groaned in agony. The force jerked Lori to the left. She smashed her shoulder and the side of her face on the bulkhead. Pain tore through her head. Stars filled her eyes. She blinked, then shook her head. She couldn't pass out. She had to get her passengers out of the plane. A fresh sea breeze brushed across her sweat covered face. Something cool touched her foot. She glanced down. Water puddled around her feet. Frowning, she lifted her legs, removing her shoes from the wetness. A newspaper floated by and pressed up against the lavatory door.
Her thigh muscles protested at being held for so long. She lowered her feet. The cold water spilled over the tops of her shoes. Darkness engulfed the plane as the lights failed. The emergency lights flickered on, then off. Then on. Lori heaved a sigh of relief. The lights faded and went out. Damn! Fear oozed out of its hole and seeped into her veins.
